Video: Laurie Greenland Gets Loose in Queenstown

Nov 14, 2019
by Ed Spratt  

bigquotesYou'll find no fancy audio trickery or upbeat music in this edit, because this is the Sound of Speed with Laurie Greenland. Nothing but pure earthy tones and the shred of tyres on soil to lull you into a full state of stoke.

Winning his first UCI World Cup in Val Di Sole this year, Laurie Greenland has been on fire all season. In this video, Greenland takes some time-out from racing to lap it up at Queenstown Bike Park in New Zealand.

 Laurie's gotta be my favourite rider to watch on a bike. The way he moves his weight around is nuts.

 @leon-forfar: the only two. RB normaly wants just one female and male athlete of every country

 @xMARTINx: I think it has more to do with skill and how high up the rankings/ results/how much exposure they receive than what country they are from.

 @leon-forfar: I think RB will also watch out who is on the market, Rachel is not at the beginning of her career anymore and you have to secure the future. Same with Gee. Also results count and Gee is not Top 10 anymore...unfortunately.

 Such a talent on a bike. He could be my new favourite rider after 10 yrs of Sam Hill.

 Wish more people would do silent edits. The sounds of riding prevail over trash music on edits.
